How Knative is the best of both worlds. Kubernetes, on the other hand, provides its advantages with zero limitations, following a traditional hosting model.
If you’re already using Kubernetes, you’ve probably heard about serverless. While both platforms are scalable, serverless goes the extra mile by providing developers with running code without worrying about infrastructure and saves on infra costs by virtually scaling your application instances from zero.
Kubernetes, on the other hand, provides its advantages with zero limitations, following a traditional hosting model and advanced traffic management techniques that help you do things — like blue-green deployments and A/B testing.
Knative is an attempt to create the best of the two worlds. As an open-source cloud-native platform, it enables you to run your serverless workloads on Kubernetes, providing all Kubernetes capabilities, plus the simplicity and flexibility of serverless.
So while your developers can focus on writing code and deploying the container to Kubernetes with a single command, Knative can manage the application by taking care of the networking details, the autoscaling to zero, and the revision tracking.
It also takes care of allowing developers to write loosely coupled code with its eventing framework that provides the universal subscription, delivery, and management of events. That means you can declare event connectivity, and your apps can subscribe to specific data streams.
Spearheaded by Google, this open-source platform has been adopted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, which means you don’t experience vendor lock-in — a considerable limitation of the current cloud-based serverless FaaS solutions. You can run Knative on any Kubernetes cluster.
Our original Kubernetes tool list was so popular that we've curated another great list of tools to help you improve your functionality with the platform.
At some point we've all said the words, "But it works on my machine." It usually happens during testing or when you're trying to get a new project set up. Sometimes it happens when you pull down changes from an updated branch.
DevOps and Cloud computing are joined at the hip, now that fact is well appreciated by the organizations that engaged in SaaS cloud and developed applications in the Cloud. During the COVID crisis period, most of the organizations have started using cloud computing services and implementing a cloud-first strategy to establish their remote operations. Similarly, the extended DevOps strategy will make the development process more agile with automated test cases.
